World Aids Day 30th anniversary

A volunteer hangs red ribbons, the universal symbol of awareness and support for those living with HIV, to mark World AIDS Day in Dharmsala, India, Saturday, Dec. 1, 2018.

It’s pretty ironic that on AIDS Day, the death of George H.W. Bush is on the spotlight. A man who publicly ridiculed at the 3rd International Conference on AIDS in Washington, DC for advocating mandatory HIV testing…

Anyhow, today marks the 30th anniversary of World AIDS Day.

A day to show support for people living with HIV/AIDS, spread awareness and commemorate the over 35 million people who have died since the start of the global epidemic.

On this World AIDS Day, listen to Dame Elizabeth Taylor rousing speech (accepting the GLAAD Vanguard Award in 2000). A true hero on the fight against HIV/AIDS.

I may not have the moral authority to say this, but respect and protect yourself.

Timeless Classic Of The Day: RIP Marty Balin

Looking for a “Timeless Classic” one of my favourite songs came to mind, a song I’ve already posted in the past.

However, I just found out that the singer died last September, and I’m sad.

Marty Balin died of unknown causes at the age of 76.

Spokesman Ryan Romenesko told the Los Angeles Times that Balin was on the way to a hospital in Tampa, Fla., on Thursday when he faltered.

Apparently, he had filed a lawsuit after being left “totally disabled” after a stay at a New York City medical facility, where he’d been admitted for an emergency procedure. Balin alleged that the staff at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital botched his recovery from open-heart surgery in 2016, according to the New York Post.

Balin was left, the suit said, without half his tongue, his vocal cords, left thumb and mobility in his left hand… WTF! This is so tragic. I can’t believe his life ended that way!

Marty leaves behind a huge legacy in rock.

And today’s Timeless Classic is dedicated to his memory.

I fell in love with this song as a kid, but never thought It would apply to my adult life one day… I miss you… I love you… Hearts can be that way.

Incredible voice, talent and song writing skills.

Rest In Peace Marty Balin. And thank you for the GREAT music.

Happy 90th Birthday Mickey Mouse

The world is wishing a happy birthday to the one and only Mickey Mouse.

Mickey Mouse, the brainchild of cartoonist Walt Disney that eventually came to symbolise a global entertainment empire, celebrates his 90th birthday today.

Now… As a kid I was never fascinated by Mickey, I found him meh, I was a boy into superheroes, Japanese robots and assorted “violence”.

It bored me the fact everyone were so into it, even the adults while I was like…. Are you all okay? When my parents took us to Disney I found it nice but that’s about it. And then was him, Mickey Mouse… More like some human underneath. I was an innocent kid, but I was not dumb. 

Regardless, there were some cute animations and he seemed nice.

But just make sure you don’t piss him off…

He was and still is the idol of many people (for whatever reason) and today I salute him.

Happy 90th birthday Mickey Mouse!

Tributes To Commemorate Stan Lee’s Life

Yesterday, on the 12th of November, one of the most famous American comic book writers and publishers, Stan Lee, passed away. Alongside other legends (Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko) he created such iconic heroes as Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, and many more, leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered by generations to come.

Fans all over the world are already sharing tribute art in honour of this iconic man that not only gave us joy, but also condemned bigotry and racism in his work.

This column titled “Stan’s Soapbox” from 1968 stands out even after five decades, as the issues he touched upon are still very relevant in our society.

If we ought to remember Stan Lee for anything, it should probably be those words.

Below some tribute art in honour of this legendary man:

There’s no chance he’ll be forgotten!!

OMG NO! Stan Lee Has Died

I’m still awake from my 2 hours of sleep last night, I was in zombie mode the whole day but I’m a sad zombie now because I just read that Stan Lee has die.

Stan Lee, who I thought would live until the end of eternity, is now making his way to the great big Comic-Con in the afterworld after he died today in Los Angeles.

Stan’s daughter tells TMZ that he was taken by ambulance from his home in the Hollywood Hills to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center this morning, and that’s where he died. He was 95 years old.

Stan Lee (born name: Stanley Martin Lieber) is one of the reasons why many actors can put their hands under their b-holes and fart out a $100 bill when paying for anything.

He co-created iconic comics like Spider-Man, X-Men, the Hulk, Doctor Strange, Black Panther, The Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Iron ManThor and pretty much many more. 

This is why I don’t believe in a “God,” when humans like him (who made millions of people happy) die while evil garbage causing chaos in our world still alive.

Stan Lee absolutely changed the world!

He was a hero and showed us that it is in fact possible for us real world humans to be super heroes. We all have the ability inside us. He didn’t create a path for us to escape life through fiction, he is one of those who showed us there exists a path in our own lives for each of us to be somebody’s superhero.

RIP, Mr. Lee.
